Stone reference shiny with small etching

For definitions of other terms unlisted here, go to these sections: How

It’s Made, Styles, Before You Purchase and Before Installation.

Acidity-Washed Finish

An acidity-washed finish is shiny with small etching marks (pits within the surface.) This

finish shows less scratches and is a lot more rustic to look at than the usual honed

finish. Most gemstones could be acidity-washed but the most typical are marble and limestone.

Acidity washing is another method to soften the shine on granite.

Brushed Finish

Brushed includes a worn-lower look achieved by brushing the top of stone,

simulating natural put on with time.

Bull Nose Edge

1 of 2 kinds of edges for gemstone ceramic tile. A elegant bull nose edge

includes a rounded or curved appearance.


In this stage, the stone slab’s surface is labored lower to some relatively

uniform thickness across the size of the fabric.


Wood subfloors usually need a CBU or cement backer unit for support along with a moisture



An underlayment that gives a good reason for tile, while still allowing

for slight movement from the substrate without damage. Plus, when water

penetrates the grout, inside a bathroom for instance, it possesses a protective waterproof



In the fabricator’s facility natural stone slabs are customized for particular


Flamed Finish

A flamed finish is achieved by heating the top of stone to extreme temperatures,

adopted by rapid cooling. The top of stone pops and chips departing a tough,

unrefined texture. This method is generally completed with granite. Flamed granite has

a very textured surface, which makes it well suited for places that slip resistance might

be considered a concern, like shower areas.


An igneous stone that’s very hard, dense and resistant against scratches and acidity

etching. It’s an ideal stone to be used in flooring as well as in preparing food areas.

Countless types of granite exist.

Honed Finish

A honed surface supplies a flat, matte or satin finish developing a more informal

and softer look. This finish is produced by stopping lacking the final stage of polishing.

A honed finish shows less scratches, and needs hardly any maintenance.

Igneous Rock

Created when molten rock (known as lava or magma) cools and hardens. Granite is definitely an

illustration of an igneous rock.


Another sedimentary stone, it’s created from calcite and sediment and comes

in lots of earthen colors.

Manufactured Stone / Agglomerate Stone

This can be a synthetic stone produced from gemstone chips suspended inside a binder such

as cement, epoxy resins or polyester. Probably the most popular kinds of manufactured

stone goods are individuals made mostly of quarta movement. Natural quarta movement provides the product

depth and radiance yet still time strength and consistency. Manufactured

Stone is powerful, it’s four occasions the flexural strength of granite, there’s

less possibility of chipping or cracking. It’s also known as Agglomerate Stone. The

renowned agglomerated stone is put-in-place terrazzo, utilized in building

for centuries.


An offshoot of limestone. It’s a metamorphic stone that may be polished. Marble

is usually soft and simply scratched or etched by acids. You will find numerous

kinds of marble from around the globe.

Metamorphic Rock

Produced when other sorts of rocks are altered by great pressure and heat inside

our planet. Marble, slate and quartzite are types of metamorphic rocks.

Polished Surface Finish

A elegant surface results in a beautiful glossy shine in the natural reflection

from the stone’s crystals. The mirror-like shine is accomplished by utilizing progressively

finer polishing heads throughout the polishing process, like the method in which sandpaper

smoothes hardwood furniture.


The quantity and size the pores inside a stone. Travertine is extremely porous and granite



For countless years, a mix of pressure and heat produced blocks of natural

stone, including granite, marble, travertine, limestone, and slate. Because the earth’s

crust started to develop and erode, it pressed minerals up from the core, developing massive

rock deposits, which we describe as “quarries”.


A sedimentary stone that’s mainly made up of loose grains of quarta movement sand that

are rough in texture. Numerous varieties can be found.

Saw-Cut Refined Finish

Saw-cut refined provides a matte finish. After initial cutting, the stone is processed

to get rid of the most heavy saw marks although not enough to attain a honed finish. You are able to

purchase granite, marble and limestone by doing this, typically on the special order basis.

Sedimentary Rock

Created from biological deposits which have gone through consolidation and crystallization.

Limestone and sandstone fall under this category.


Blocks of stone which have been obtained from our planet and cut.


A metamorphic stone which has a sheet-like structure. It consists of clay, quarta movement

and shale, and comes in many colors including reds and vegetables.

Split Faced Finish

Split-faced provides you with a tough texture, only one less abrasive as flamed. This finish

is usually achieved by hands cutting and chiseling in the quarry, exposing the

natural cleft from the stone. This finish is mainly done on slate.

Stone Tile

The normal gemstone ceramic tile sizes are 12”x12”, 13”x13”,

16”x16” and 18”x18.

Straight 90-Degree Edge

1 of 2 kinds of edges for gemstone ceramic tile. A elegant straight 90-

degree edge results in a more contemporary and clean look.


The top which the stone tile is laid.


A cement based adhesive that’s put on the top having a notched or grooved

trowel. The tile will be put into the thinset and pressed firmly into position.

Since stone tiles vary thick and size, the quantity of thinset mortar applied

is adjusted where needed.


A crystallized, partly metamorphosed limestone which, due to its structure,

could be filled and honed and it is dense enough to become a kind of marble.

Tumbled Finish

Offers a smooth or slightly pitted surface, and damaged, rounded edges and corners.

There are many methods used to offer the tumbled look. 3/8” thick tiles

could be tumbled inside a machine to offer the preferred look, or 3cm tiles could be tumbled

after which split, creating two tiles which are tumbled somewhere. Marble and limestone

are primary candidates for any tumbled finish.

Unsanded Grout

A dry, Portland cement-based product which is combined with water onsite. The grout

mixture is spread within the tiled area having a grout float to fill out of all joints.

A sponge will be accustomed to remove excess grout from the top of tile while

departing the grout within the joints for stopping. United nations-sanded grout is most generally utilized in

gemstone installations because with the ability to fill the little joints easier

and won’t scratch soft gemstones like sanded grout.
